Has anyone experienced a major change in their site's positioning in Google in the past week? A client of mine has a site that was in the sandbox for a couple of months due to a domain switch and then it started ranking very well for his keywords. Then yesterday he noticed all the new ranking magically disappeared and when I did a search to be sure the site wasn't banned, I saw the exact same number of pages listed in Google as before we got the better ranking.
The only thing we've been doing is some active reciprical linking, no on-page optimization. I'm worried that a couple of sites we linked to may have caused Google to move us back to our sandbox status. We're removing any questionable links (we're being overly cautious - we tried to only put topical links on the site).
Your thoughts? Thanks!
